  • Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could - some blunders and absurdities have crept in - forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day, you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered by your old nonsense.

    Bit long for a wall but I love it anyway. Go Ralph Waldo Emerson.

    Leeching off other artists.




  • 'Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans' - John Lennon.





  • If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;

    -If by Rudyard Kipling

    Or you know pretty much all of that poem:p
    I'm not really a big poetry fan, but I love that one!

  • Bob Dylan is the most incredible person ever.

    "A person is a success if they get up in the morning and gets to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do."

    He's so gosh darn profound. Also, check my sig. It's my favourite quote ever I'd say...

    Also, Banksy comes out with some serious gems.

    "When I was five years old, my Mom told me happiness was the key to life. When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
    I wrote down "happy".
    They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."

    That was in my sig for a while as well actually...




  • "Indeed. So listen up boy or pornography starring your mother will be the second worst thing that happens to you today". - Le Spy




  • A really simple line I like from a song (a "something to live by" sort of quote) - What you give to the world is what it keeps of you.

    From that novel Eragon (or maybe whatever the second one was called, I don't remeber) - Live in the present, remember the past, and fear not the future, for it doesn't exist and never shall.

    And this one, my favourite line from Scrubs -
    Dr. Kelso: Are you an idiot?
    JD: No, Sir, I'm a dreamer.


    Ooh, one more, from the song "You and I" by Ingrid Michaelson:
    Well, you might be a bit confused, and you might be a little bit bruised but, baby, how we spoon like no one else.

    ...yes, they are all from my facebook page




  • This sounds like an ambitious idea.

    I'll provide some Douglas Adams quotes.
    "In the beginning, the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry, and is generally considered to have been a bad move."

    "This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy. " - Probably too big for what you're doing, but there it is should you want it.

    "Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news, which follows its own laws. "

    And a couple not by Douglas Adams:
    "It is a mathematical fact that fifty percent of all doctors graduate in the bottom half of their class."

    "Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much." - Oscar Wilde




  • There's an abundance of class Salvador Dali quotes. :)

    "Each morning when I awake, I experience an exquisite joy - that of being Salvador Dali."

    "The only difference between me and a madman is that I'm not mad."

    "Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it."

    "There are some days when I think I'm going to die from an overdose of satisfaction."

    "Since I don't smoke, I decided to grow a mustache - it is better for the health."

    EDIT: I realise that none of them are really profound but still. :P




  • These are brilliant! Thanks guys :D

    Really appreciate it

    You're all so deep :P




  • I <3 the chorus of Band Aid by Pixie Lott
    There's something 'bout you
    That's like the sun
    You warm up my heart, when I come undone
    You're like my soul mate
    And on those days,
    When I hurt
    When I break
    Mhm
    You are my band aid You are, you are
    Isn't it cute?! :pac:




  • "The angle of my dangle is inversely proportional to the heat of my meat" Will Ferrell

  • "One day, someone showed me a glass of water that was half full. And he said, 'Is it half full or half empty?' So I drank the water. No more problem." Alexander Jodorowsky.

    "A stumble may prevent a fall." - ?

    "You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is 'never try'." - Homer Simpson.

  • We must go forward, not backward. Upward, not forward. And always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom.

    "Our world, with its rules of causality, has trained us to be miserly with forgiveness. By forgiving them too readily, we can be badly hurt. But if we've learned from a mistake and became better for it, shouldn't we be rewarded for the learning, rather than punished for the mistake?"- Braid

    Oooh, axioms don't get proven. Maths fail in SF4 there. :(




  • "The Theory of Evolution claims that: “Only the strong shall survive” … but the Theory of Competition says: “Just because they’re the strong, doesn’t mean they can’t get their asses kicked!”.

  • Lets spend the rest of summer stoned,
    and wake up for the winter,
    without the memory of the sun,
    and I've got nothing to moan about.

    Night of the Pencils - Tubelord

    Just read this a few minutes ago while listening to the song and really liked it :)
